The 49.9 metre motor yacht Framura 3, jointly listed for sale by Fraser with Edmiston & Company, has been sold with the buyer introduced by IYC in Monaco.
Built in aluminium by Italian yard Codecasa to a design by Andrea Bacigalupo, Framura 3 was delivered in 2013. Designers Franco and Anna Della Role worked closely with the original owner to produce a classically-styled interior accommodating 12 guests in six cabins comprising a master suite with a sea balcony, VIP suite, double and three twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep nine staff.
The owner of Framura 3 requested large, light spaces for the interiors, generous outdoor areas and considerable power to allow speedy crossings. Obviously, to obtain the power required by the owner it was necessary to contain the weight, even though the three MTU engines are extremely powerful. The yard took this into account and showed its ability to construct with care, following careful procedures at each phase of the production, allowing a precise distribution of weight.
Her principal living space is a vast full-beam saloon located on the main deck. Sliding doors lead from the aft deck into an open-plan lounge separated into two seating areas by an entertainment centre. Large picture windows run the length of the salon providing panoramic ocean views while cruising.
A staircase leads from the main deck to the upper deck which boasts an elegant formal dining area for eight guests plus an upper pantry. Finished in the same bleached oak as the saloon, the dining area is connected to the galley via a dumb waiter for impeccable service while dining onboard. Her top speed is 26 knots and her power comes from three 2,600hp MTU 16V2000M94 diesel engines.
Framura 3 was asking €12,500,000 and will enter a period of refurbishment before becoming available for charter in the Mediterranean during summer 2020 with IYC.
